months, using only 30 symbol s,

takes six years to master the 4,ouo 
ideographs essential to simple 
reading, and only 5 per cent, ever 
learn ; b. June 3, 1843, s. of a black- 
smith. Early lost his left arm by 
iin accident; rural postman ; hi 
1863 became a colporteur for 
National Bible Society of Scotland, 
by whom (1871) he was sent to 
North China ; in 1879, adapted 
Braille's symbols for the blind t< 
represent numbers, and numbered 
the 408 sounds in use at Peking 
(which are the standard for all 
Mandarin dialects) ; seeing tin- 
facility with which the blind ac- 
quired the power of reading and 
writing, illiterate Christians craved 
his help, and by substituting black 
lines for the raised white dots, he 
produced the simplest possible 
set of geometric forms ; these are 
the printing-type with which the 
blind now print books for sighted 
persons ; in the Boxer trouble his 
blind women were all martyred, 
and most the men and boys ; he 
himself suffered so severely that he 
became totally blind in one eye and

organised his schools and printing 
work.s. Address: School for the
